Bad Company Talking New Music

After taking the bulk of August off, Bad Company resume their 40th anniversary tour this weekend in Canada, and guitarist Mick Ralphs says it has been “incredibly enjoyable… The chemistry is still there… [Drummer] Simon [Kirke] was playing great, and Paul [Rodgers] is singing better than ever. I still get chills when I hear him going for certain notes. It’s hard to believe it’s been 40 years since we started… I think we played the best we’ve ever played on this tour.” This last leg of dates runs through September 29th in Pomona, California.

In addition to touring, Ralphs is hoping they record again. “It would be nice to…come up with the songs. We always leave that door open. Nowadays most people want to hear the songs they expect to hear –- like ‘Shooting Star,’ ‘Ready for Love,’ ‘Movin’ On’ and ‘Can’t Get Enough.’ And that’s fine… As long as the songs sound valid and fresh, we’ll continue. But yes, we might do some new stuff.” The last complete Bad Company studio album by the original lineup was 1982’s Rough Diamonds.

Ralphs will follow up the Bad Company tour with a small U.K. reunion tour with his pre-Bad Co. band, Mott the Hoople.
